Another score commissioned by Surrey Brass to accompany the rare showing of an early British silent film made at the Hepworth Studios, Walton-On-Thames, Surrey, in 1910. This was one of a series of slapstick comedy films featuring Tilly The Tomboy and her partner in crime which were hugely popular in their day and made stars of the two local girls who played them, Chrissie White and Alma Taylor. In this film, the Tomboys are told to go and look after a poor sick old lady but instead reak havoc as they charge around their village, knocking over tradesmen, stealing a laundry van and invading a bakehouse. It's reminiscent of a Benny Hill chase as more and more people join in line to catch the girls ….. and when they finally do, the girls are to be found sitting caring for the sick old lady, looking as if butter wouldn't melt in their mouth. Great fun and remarkably sophisticated for its day.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.
